Ok I moved the kernel and /etc/arcboot.conf to my /boot (and as noted in
the man page, made a link from boot to boot) and changed my arcboot.conf
to reflect the changes.
Now in the prom I resetenv so that:
SystemPartition = pci(0)scsi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(8)
then ran arcboot - then it says it can't find the arcboot.conf or an
ext2fs. Then it says to adjust OSLoadPartition to
pci(0)scsi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(2) Which I tried with no success
I also tried pci(0)scsi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(1) with no success.
My boot partition is on sda1, root is sda3, and swap is sda2.
any ideas what I'm doing dumb?
